to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
of this convention? >> when you're able to start with michelle obama and give bill clinton an opportunity to lay it out and then be able to give a ring side perspective like my dad did, that's what it was all about. michelle, bill clinton and then barack obama, that's, the convention was phenomenal. >> is he comfortable playing bad cop sometimes? i was surprised at the bin laden -- >> he was. the reality is he wants to make, to give the american people the perspective of what the president does every day. to make sure average americans are taken care of and that they have a foundation to build a better future and that's what last night was about. given the decision, the single biggest decision in his administration, going after and taking out bin laden. that's what last night was about. >> were you surprised, i mean, did you guys look at what romney did on that thursday night, the lack of mention of afghanistan and was more add it last night to talk about national security than maybe a week ago? >> i don't know, but i'm confidence the president would talk about veterans any way. i'm confidence m
that question over the next several days. the president's wife, michelle obama, and of course bill clinton who the democratic party and the obama campaign in particular are turning towards big time now to try to be kind of a validator for what democrats can do with the economy because, remember, the economy was in great shape when he left office. >> that one little no will be tough to recover. dana bash live for us, thank you very much. >>> and here is a look at some of the key speakers who will take the podium at the convention tomorrow. first lady michelle obama will address the opening night of the gathering. on wednesday former president bill clinton will give the nominating address. and, of course, president obama delivers his acceptance speech. cnn coverage begins tomorrow at noon with wolf blitzer. submit your questions and get answers in real time live chat. logis on to cnn.com/roundtable to participate. >>> it's an election year which means the truth probably lies somewhere are in between the partisan talking points. let's talk some numbers. business correspondent christine romans joi
over town. we just heard a variety of the democrats bad mouthing mitt romney. last night michele obama did not mention mitt romney's name. the first half of her speech could have been from a conservative because it is personal responsibility and the second half about her husband and why shoohe should have the key to camp david four more years. >> so many people had a hand in our success. from the teachers who inspired us and the janitors who kept our school clean. barack refused to lits lis to folks who told him to leave health reform another day and another president. he didn't care whether it was easy to do politically. that's not how he was raised and i hear the determination in his voice he tells me. you will not believe what folks are going through. it is not right. we have to work to fix this and we have so much more to do. >> brian: i think she was strong. she was poise and delivered a great message and the delivers the young family growing nup the white house and needs more time. i thought one thing everybody talked about the mayor of san antonio. julian castro and i think when
. >> reporter: what led to this bounce? it points to michelle obama's performance and bill clinton and those who chose obama last time who still like him but are disappointed. >> no president, no president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: the romney campaign tonight calling the bounce a, quote, sugar high from the convention, that the reality of the obama economy hasn't changed. to say it's nearly impossible mathematically for governor romney to win the white house without winning right here in ohio. this is right here in the factory. romney now with 15 ads up in nine battleground states but the number most important october 3rd debating president obama less than one month until that first debate. how important are these debates going to be? >> well, i think the debates very important particularly when you have a small sliver of the electorate that has yet to make up their mind. >> reporter: the romney campaign acknowledging to me today just how important those debates are g
messenger michelle obama checked out the arena this afternoon in advance of her speech tomorrow night. other key speakers include san antonio's mayor castro, massachusetts candidate elizabeth warren and former president bill clinton. all have their remarks aimed at key democratic constituencies. >> the obama campaign got another convention headache earlier this morning when the chairman of the california democratic party publicly compared paul ryan to nazi propagandaist joseph goebbels. the romney campaign took offense and called for a full repudiation of the remarks. the obama campaign did repudiate the remarks but did not call on mr. burton the chairman of the california party to resign. kate? >> chuck todd in north carolina tonight. >>> president obama spent this holiday on the campaign trail with a stop in a key swing state today before moving on to see flood damage in louisiana. kristen welker is traveling with the president and joins us from new orleans. good evening, kristen. >> reporter: good evening, kate. we are in new orleans where president obama took a detour from the campaign t
a little preview of what we're hearing from michelle obama, are we going to see the president at all tonight, a la mitt romney and ann romney last week? >> reporter: not exactly to see the president, chuck, but i am told he's going to watch the first lady's speech here at the white house, as you said, he's going to be campaigning all you day. he'll be back in time to watch her speech. so we know that is for certain, but as you mentioned, we're going to hear things from the first lady when she takes the podium this evening. she's really going to talk about her husband's values. she's going to talk a lot about why he understands the middle class. why he's the best candidate to defend the middle class and also going to defend his policies particularly as they relate to women. of course, that's a key constituency to president obama. she'll talk about the lilly ledbetter act, talk about health care, why the policies have been so beneficial to women and while she's not going to mention mitt romney by name, she is clearly going to try to draw a sharp contrast with mitt romney who, for examp
and there is first lady, michelle obama. at and on the stage of the democratic national convention in charlotte, preparing for the speech that she will deliver tomorrow. delegates have been gathering in large numbers already outside the actual convention hall, but there she is, being given directions as to where to speak and a microphone and obviously the telepromter stands as well. and her husband, the president, well, he was out in ohio where he wished a happy labor day to auto workers in toledo and everyone working hard each and other day as he pushed his role in securing the auto bailout that kept the assembly lines running. >> ohio, we're not about to take a knee and do nothing. we're not going to let detroit go bankrupt or lordstown or toledo. i stood with american workers, american -- i'll make that bet any day of the week and because of that bet, three years later, that bet is paying off for america! >> the toledo rally is part of the president's pregame tour gearing up for the democratic national convention starting tomorrow in charlotte, north carolina. first lady, live there on the s
beast, it will be in tomorrow. i read it. you quote michelle obama at the democratic convention in her speech, she said being president reveals who you are. you say so do campaigns and you're not happy with what's being revealed about mitt romney? how so? what do you think this tape reveals? >> well, there's a lot of us who have been waiting for a long time for some seminal moment for mitt romney to reveal his character and unfortunately, i'm afraid that this tape is exactly what that does but not in the way we had hoped for. it's getting harder to support him, getting harder to defend him. you know, i talked a lot about how i remember in september 2000, things were difficult, the dark days of september, and easy to bounce back, but when you start casting off half the country as victims, that causes a lot of pause for independents and people like me who cross the line in the mid '90s to join the republican party because of ideas like compassionate conservatism. i don't hear any of that from mitt romney. i'm trying to figure out what the broader vision and narrative is that takes care o
this on television. let's liz listen. >> you had michelle obama and like lady gaga ask bill clinton like elvis and tonight justin bieber ask michael jackson and prince roll would up together. >> steve: they cancelled the big stadium but it was beautiful outside and not a cloud in the sky. not a rain cloud in the sky. >> gretchen: we'll do head lines for you. a true american hero killed trying to save a life. david nelson was visiting friend no, sir destroit when a car pulled up and start tod shoot a girl. nelson was killed . he earned a purple heart after being hit by enemy fire in iraq. >> steve: just like old times. except for hospital food. koch has been catching up with sphen year old peter balone. he is getting a stint put in koch set to go home later today. >> gretchen: there is a new food fight playing out in minnesota. stunes are outraged over the federal meal guide lines. and so on the chopping blook. cookies and old milk and rationing ketchup to one packet per stune. >> i plan on bringing a bag lunch. we are just play by ear. >> gretchen: the school blaming washington for the change.
of fell flat on the heels of michelle obama's speech but, of course, david axelrod and campaign aides have done the same thing saying they didn't think they were going to get much of a bounce out of the convention anyway. on the heels of these two conventions, we are nowhere different than where we were before the convention, very even going into the debates. we'll have a very level playing field on october 3rd. >> heather: president obama was given a heads-up as to what this jobs report would be prior to his speech which is normal. he knew it was coming. he is campaigning today in florida, a state with the highest elderly population and unemployment rate of 8.8%. there is four key battleground states where the unemployment elevated above the national average. we mentioned florida, in nevada, 12%, north carolina, where they had the dnc. 9.9%. michigan, 9%. 735 delegates up for grabs among those states. how does the obama campaign win them over with job reports like friday's? >> what they are doing is running a very specific state by state campaign. so when you talk about michigan, presiden
are unlikely because hollywood loves obama the president has been on "the view", a has-been on leno. michelle obama has done leno, jimmy fallon, nick lodine, and others. president bush recently did a cameo in hollywood. it is his severed head on a stake in the hbo film "game of thrones". that might be how hollywood reviews republicans versus how they will view obamacare, ashley. ashley: the message is clear on that one. dennis, thank you very much. >> okay. tracy: all right. it is quarter until the hour. got to get a look at stocks as we do every 15 minutes. nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. hey, nicole. >> the energizer bunny keeps going here. we're looking closely at energizer today. the stock is doing well and on the heels of what they're doing with their company, reviewing their cost structure and operating model. they're working on a cost savings of nearly $200 million. that ultimately will improve profitability and drive their long-term growth. at the same time, energizer actually reaffirmed their earnings outlook for the fiscal year. so take a look. you see
'm not surprised at all because i've gotten to know her. she's fantastic. i also think michelle obama did a very good job. there were a lot of very good jobs, but i think the democrats had more appropriate people to the party than the republicans did. >> steve: there was also bill clinton who gave a great if not very long speech on behalf of the current president. >> he did. >> steve: the day after the president gave his speech, donald, and by all accounts, the president flat in comparison to some of the soaring rhetoric that we've heard in the past, the day after, out pops the jobs number and it just couldn't be worse for the white house.6,000d 368,000 people left the hunt for jobs. for every job created, four people dropped out. the economic news couldn't get worse for the president. >> right. it was a bad report. it was a very bad report, was not covered as badly and as -- the way it should have been, but frankly, i'm listening to made in america or made in the usa, regardless of what he's saying, why isn't he doing something about china? he never attacks china. he's not stopping the problem
pictures were published of the wife of president obama. i think michelle obama would take a different view about pictures of her topless than she might about someone on a beach in miami. i think that's the key difference. >> well, some might argue and probably very few, but some might argue that even if you're in a private home, is it ever wise to go outside of that home and take your top off? >> i don't think anyone would disagree with that. i have worked for celebrity clients for over 20 years. if any celebrity client came to me and asked me whether it was ever wise to take their top off in a public place anywhere, i would say absolutely not. so i think kate, the duchess of cambridge was unwise to do that. i think, however, that the punishment is inappropriate. it does not seem to me that justifies a worldwide set of pictures on the basis of and moments in discretion where she thought she was safe and where she thought she was private. >> well, it just comes on the heels of the prince harry scandal and the nude pictures taken of him in a private hotel room. >> well, i think this is absol
that same fund raiser. president obama said beyonce is the best role model. and later on michelle that was the couch was the best place for obama to sleep . ♪ ♪ no i don't understand. ♪ ♪ ♪ >> steve: the post office can't balance the books. increase the number of sales pitches. armed officers dropping from chappers and taking terrorist in custody it was not real. it was a nypd drill. college students enrolled in the nypd cadet core were the hostages. only a drill. >> gretchen: thank you, brian. democrats are claiming that president obama is the best candidate for women voters? >> president obama has walked with america's women and helped women in this country fight for equal pay, for equal work. and he believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care. that's what my husband stands for. >> so they claim republicans are waging a war on women. whoo do women actually think? joining me co-author of the book. liberty, no war on women. sabrina schaffer. >> thanks for having me. >> gretchen: it seems they were trying to fi
coordinated. >> steve: michelle, clearly romney's statement was devastating to the president of the united states where he said, you know, you can't have the embassy sending out these apology notes because it was devastating to obama because now the main stream media is screaming bloody murder. >> yeah, that's right. and just to take this more bigger picture, you've got this petty, partisan, sniping left dog media and they cannot see the bigger picture here. and provide the proper context in reporting on what's going on in the middle east now. here they are all fixated on terry jones, they're falling for the propaganda of these islamic imperialists when it has nothing to do with this obscure internet video, clips of which have been floating around since june. the providence of which is still under question. and they report it anyway as if that's what's really going on here when there is a larger pretext going on and manufacturing. the fact that they still call these protests when these are violent attacks that have been happening. >> brian: when the coptic christians were having their chur
